This rant by Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson suggests that white people have tremendous benefits over people of color: “One of the greatest privileges of being white in this country is to encounter a police person on the street and live to tell about it.” And here’s how he described being a professor: “Can we challenge the forces of unconscious white privilege and implicit bias to come out of the closet and to be held accountable? That’s my job. One of my white students, after reading a book that horrendously detailed the tragedies and horrors of white violence against black people, said, ‘For the first time in my life, I feel ashamed to be white.'”
